Simo Dladla, a former coach at Richards Bay who is currently with Swallows, believes the left-back will succeed with the Glamour Boys, according to a report by SowetanLIVE.
“He will give them a lot of balance. He is not clumsy. I mean, he is not a guy who will get reckless and get unnecessary yellow cards or red cards. He also has an eye for goal and Chiefs have signed a good player here," said Dladla.
